Howzit peeps,

I brain stormed last night and came up with an idea....No limited TC coconut trunk carved Tiki's, I'm sorry. Only because I planed on doing 40 Tiki's...which would require lots of hunting for 2 foot coconut stupms. Everyone would be paying different prices too because of weight and diameter.
That would create conflict. So, sorry.

But, I can do limited wall plaques in a series of 50 for TC members only not for ebay. I wanted to do it in a traditional style Tiki being thats my specialty. I just made a Tangaroa Plaque. Tangaroa is one of my favorite Tikis. He is popular threw most of polynesia. He is the Fertility God, God of the Sea and fisherman. His face is on the cover of the book "Night of the Tiki". He is also seen in some shag prints. It's going to be around 2feet tall.

I have 1/50 at the house now in the process. I need someone (sugarcaddydaddy, alnshely?) to receive an email of it from me to post it on TC being that I don't know much about da kine...computers. If you don't like it I can add paint or whatevas we need to do befor I start the work. the75stingray has seen it an said he wanted one.

So, when the picture gets posted just reply yes or no. Since it's for TC members I would like to put some of your ideas in it if you like.

These will come with a signed laminated certicicate. I will also put the TC members name on the back with mine or in the front whichever you agree on.

THANK YOU FOR THE KIND WORDS!!!!!

Mahaloz!

I've seen your work, on ebay, and know without seeing a pic it will be excellent.

Please sign me up for 1 TC wall plaque.

I'll just have to keep watching your ebay auctions to score one of your Tikis.

Thanks!

They will be $60. My wall panels normaly sell for $60/small to $125/large and this will be a pretty big one. So you're paying for what a small one cost for members. The back will read

TC Edition 2/50
SullTiki
Gecko

TC Edition 3/50
Kokomo TikiBar&Grill
Gecko

I will put your usernames on them to make them special. So when we grow old and gray or gone threw the Tikigates of heaven our next Tikifiles will be collecting our wall panels and saying "WOW! Do you see that old TC edition wall panel of Kokomo Tikibar&Grill on ebay"!!

Which ever order your payment comes in I will give u that number. Please understand that this is what I do for FUN. I do have a job at Pearl Harbor that takes 8 hours of my time. PLEASE don't make it feel like a JOB! So, all I ask is for your Aloha spirit threw this. Please don't get restless. I'm still looking for any Ideas if anyone dosen't agree. I can start this weekend. I would like more feedback though. I still would like to post a picture. You gotta see what you're paying for ya. oh and 1/50 will be mine sorry.

Mahaloz Plenny

Ok, boys and girls..here are the pictures. If you, by chance, have any problems seeing the pictures, let me know and I'll email them to you in a zip file. Any other questions other than that, send a message to Gecko direct.

Size: 2'3" tall x 10" wide

Certificate: (sample certificate in the picture) is the size of a business card and will say that it is a limited edition along with the limited edition number.

Numbering system: 2 thru 50 (Gecko gets #1), and the edition numbers will go by the order the checks/money orders come in to him.

Full explanation on shipping costs, where to send money, limited edition number designations, etc., will follow in the next few days by Gecko.
